Comments From Out Visitors

  • Hello,
    Last week I received the CD that I won from your site. It is FANTASTIC. Great music and is now a favorite of mine.
    Thank you again for selecting me as a winner.
    Yours truly,
    Glenn Maziar

  • Thank you so much for the info. I was dying to know. It's a really pretty piano and in very good shape for its age. Thank you again for the history!
    Tammie Strunck

  • You have been most helpful. I have already shared info on your website and will continue to do so. Thanks again.

  • Howdy!
    Just a quick note of thanks. I appreciate the information and service provided by your company. As it turns out, our piano with made in 1909....same year as my wife's grandfather, and both are still going strong!
    Thanks again,
    Geoffrey Greene

  • Thank you very much for the information. No one knew much of the piano's history. We have had it in the famly for about 30 years. I read your article posted about piano values. I'm afraid it is just an old piano but still in pretty good condition and the kids love to play it. Thank you again.
    Julie Cleary

  • Frank, I just wanted to thank you for that extremely quick response re: our Howard baby grand piano, serial #310219 which you said was built in 1942. Even a piano buyer who was out here today could not find the date of the piano based on the serial number.
    Based upon your feedback and that of the buyer, I was able to make a better decision on how much to sell it for. Again, many thanks.

  • I'm cleaning out old mail and realized I'd saved this to let you know that my piano bench order arrived, but forgot. It came in plenty of time for Christmas, just as you promised, and was a bit hit.
    Thanks so much,

  • Dear Frank,
    Thanks for placing my ad on AAP--your web site is faantaaastic! Yes I would like to ad a picture to my ad for the George Steck piano, and I've attached the file to this message.
    Larry Lobel

  • Hi Frank,
    Thank you for the information about our piano. Your response was much quicker than expected. We will surely tell others about your wonderful and informative site.
    Lori Frayne

  • Thanks, your info helped me purchase a great baby grand piano and I felt like I knew what I was doing after reading the info here. Am very happy with my new purchase and now trying to sell the old one. Have submitted an ad for the old Kimball.

  • And thanks to you , Frank Baxter !
    Great Page , by the way.

  • Good Afternoon-Frank
    Thank you for the information.
    I will certanly spread the word about the "All About Pianos" site. My wife and I have enjoyed very much the site's logical layout. Much success in you endeavor.
    Best Regards,

  • Dear Mr. Baxter,
    It just occurred to me that I never wrote to thank you for the lamp that you shipped express. so- Thank you! It arrived on time, of course, and I gave it to my wife for her birthday present; she loves it.
    Your service was exemplary and I will be happy to recommend your store widely.
    Yours truly,
    Ethan Benatan

  • HEY Frank!
    just mailing to let you know that I was here, I'm gonna review it for Yahoo Internet Life and put in for a link from Yahoo, the sites beautiful.
    Matt B.

  • Greetings,
    My name is Rob Kiddell and I'm a technician in Canada. I have a page up for Atonal Piano Service, and you've already visited and sent me e-mail, so I'm returning the favour. Wow! You've packed a ton of information into your site! I've already linked your site on my links page and would'nt mind if you put in a link to mine. You don't have any listings for Canada or Canadian technicians (that I found), I have a list of Canadian techs that I use to refer people to up here. It's not part of my web page yet, but it might be soon!
    Again, a great page, but the spinning grand slows down the transfer!
    Rob Kiddell, RPT Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

  • I actually just bought this piano last night (10/3/96), believing the previous owner's estimate that it is about 23 years old. I hope she wasn't too far off.
    Thanks for checking this out for me.
    Your web page has been most helpful in my search for a used piano.
    Phil LoPiccolo
  • Frank--
    Thanks for checking my baby grand's birth date. I love it and do indeed plan to take good care of it. I'll check out the tuners listing. I appreciate all your help.
    Best wishes, Phil LoPiccolo

  • Thank you very much for the information. It was interesting to hear how old it is!
    Ernest Eichler

  • Frank You've built quite a site. Useful and fun. I pull Web pages of the week from all over the place.
    It's a great site. You deserve the news coverage.

  • Frank...your site is great! I've changed my web page to add your link under "Fun Stuff" Good job! Sue :)

  • Hi Frank: Thanks for your fast reply -- I thought my piano was manufactured in the 20s -- now, thanks to you, I know! Your web site has a permanent bookmark on my Internet Navigator.
    Thanks again!

  • Thank you so much for your quick reply. I have printed your reply and will check out my piano. I am so happy to have found your page. I will certainly bookmark it!!! Thanks again, and I'll be sure to check out the other pages you mentioned.
    Lynda Ashcroft.

  • Hi Frank, I just wanted to say thank you for your response, and I am quite suprised to see how old it is, but it is information I am happy to have! I just wanted to say thanks again, and I will be sure to spread the word for you. Have a great day!

  • Dear Frank, Thank you very much for your e-mail re: the age of our piano. I have not been able to find its age in any piano books around here. I will check out "All About Pianos" further -- it looks very good!
    Thanks again,
    Janice and David

  • Dear Mr. Baxter
    Thank you very much for the information on the piano producers named "Franklin". The information helped me a lot!
    I had been searching for the information on internet for hours, but found nothing. Then I reached your page All About Pianos. That was the most informative page I hit upon during the search.
    I am a English-Japanese translator, and my job requires a lot of research on various matters. I'll tell my translator friends about your All About Pianos.
    Thank you very much again!!

  • Dear Mr. Baxter:
    Thank you so much for the information on the age of my piano. I bought it used about 3 years ago while living in Ohio. Had my piano tuner tune it, replace some bass strings, and refinish the case. Moved it to Florida, and my tuner down here says the next tuning, he should be able to bring it up to concert pitch.
    It was fun to find out that the piano is 70 years old. Neither piano tuner was able to give me any information at all.
    Really enjoyed your web site.
    Thanks again,
    Trudie Tyler

  • Enjoyed the informativness of your page.
    I spent many months several years ago trying to gather information on types, age and in general on pianos. I finally bought secondhand and to my surprise I was contacted by a collector and piano restorer who wanted to take photo's and see my find himself. The piano it seems is an original bought out to Australia from germany in 1931. I think if I had your page then it would have been of great assistance. I will keep it on my bookmark and certainly reccomend it to friends and family.
    Thanks heaps,
    Kindest Regards
    Lee-Anne Train.
